Q: How do we locate and mark utilities?

A: Blue Stake must be notified at least 3 days in advance to locate and mark all underground utilities at (602) 263-1100. Or I can do this for you.

NOTE: Blue Stake does not locate private utilities. This includes your water line from the meter to the house and swimming pool utilities and electric and water lines to any out buildings. Bomat Trenching cannot be responsible for any unmarked, unexposed underground utility.

Q: How can I prepare for my sprinkler trenching?

A: You need a plan. If you are not familiar with sprinkler installation, we recommend getting advice from a sprinkler store (not a big box store). You are going to invest money and considerable effort in your system so it pays to have the best advise, parts and materials that you can get.

After you have your plan you need to mark where you want your lines dug using white or hot pink upside down spay paint or Type S Lime. Trenches can parallel walls and trenches at about 18".

Q: How long does it take to dig a trench?

A: Our machines are set up to handle Arizona land conditions with ease. This combined with our years of experience makes us able to complete most jobs within a few hours.

Q: Does the yard need to be prepared by us before trenching?

A: No watering or tilling of the ground is required as our machines are made to handle Arizona earth. Just ensure that the area that we will be working on is cleared of any yard decor and personal belongings.

Q: Do I need to be home while you trench?

A: It is preferred that you be home, but it is not necessary, as long as I can access you via phone and the job is marked the way you want it.

Q: Can you trench in the mud?

A: No.

Q: How can I prepare for Fence footings?

A: It is best to have your property pins located. Mark where you want your trench using white or hot pink upside down paint or Type S Lime. We can parallel existing fences at approximately 32".

Q: What if my trenches get rained on?

A: A light rain shouldn't affect your trenches too much. However, if you get a heavy downpour, there will be additional cleanout.
